Storyline

General Daffy, in a Napoleon hat, commands a fort. Porky sleeps too soundly, so Daffy needs to roust him, but when the Indians attack, he's the only one awake to see them. There follows a series of fight gags, including some recycled from Johnny Smith and Poker-Huntas (1938) and _Hardship of Miles Standish, The (1940)_. A cross-eyed Indian keeps shooting his own horse, until the horse takes action. A soldier counts "one little, two little..." with the Indian taking the last line. A short Indian uses a tall bow-legged one to shoot his arrows. Finally, Porky calls for more bullets; Daffy trips while carrying them and swallows them, turning himself into a machine gun. Porky uses Daffy to rout the Indians, who run into a hillside, spelling out "Yanks beat Indians 11-3." Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

I'm sorry...
16 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

...but I can't give this cartoon a positive review. It's just plain racist. The fact that they pulled some scenes out of previous material takes a back issue to the clear point that they portray Indians mercilessly. I know, the portrayal here is no different from other portrayals of the era, but in the 21st century, we should know better.

So, only watch "Slightly Daffy" if you can understand that they offer a very negative portrayal of Native Americans. I will admit that what Daffy and Porky do at the beginning is fairly entertaining, but that doesn't make up for the rest of the cartoon. It's rather nasty, if I may say so.
